Gear up for first day of the trek. Walk for a couple hundred meters towards the road that leads to Taluka, the route to Kedarkantha gets a diversion on the right near a water stream.

There is a steep climb involved as soon as you take right. The trail goes through the beautiful forest of oak, birch & deodar. The sound of some minor streams flowing through rocks will please your ears. It just takes around 3 hours to reach Juda ka Talab but when the trail is well laden with fresh snow it might take up to 4 hrs (in winters). Juda ka Talab is a beautiful lake surrounded with trees on one side and lush green elevated meadow on all the other sides. It is situated at an altitude of 2800 mts above sea level. The lake remains frozen during winters. At times the ice layer on the lake becomes so thick that you can even walk over the frozen Juda ka Talab.

 


After spending some time at Juda ka Talab, we will trek towards Kedarkantha base camp. The trail passes through tree line and will be covered with snow (during winters). You’ll encounter couple of picturesque spots that are ideal for camping. After roughly walking for an hour and a half you’ll reach Lower Kedarkantha Base Camp. This campsite is often occupied when there is heavy snowfall at the upper area of Kedarkantha, the summit of Kedarkantha is clearly visible from this region.
